  • With all the talk about next Saturday being the biggest home game in Ole Miss football history, there is a game just as big in Starkville as the Bulldogs host a Texas A&M team that will surely be ranked in the top ten. State spent the week ranked No. 14, which means we’ll be in for a heavyweight SEC West matchup next Saturday.

    As always, MSU will be led on offense by quarterback Dak Prescott. The junior has completed 58 of 96 passes this season for 964 yards and 11 touchdowns and has also rushed for 378 yards and three TDs. He had a huge game against LSU the last time out, and has stayed healthy so far in 2014. Prescott should be rested and ready to face an Aggies defense that struggled to keep Arkansas’ offense off the field for the better part of four quarters Saturday.

    Of course, the question will be whether or not the Bulldogs can slow down Kenny Hill and the high-powered A&M offense. The Bulldogs have been up and down on the defensive side of the ball so far this season. They shut out Southern Miss and held South Alabama to three points, but surrendered 34 points to UAB in Week 2 and 29 to LSU in the SEC opener.
